Odds of a Safety Being Scored in Super Bowl 51 – Payout Close to $800

There was a time when oddsmakers would price a safety being scored in a Super Bowl at above 10-1, but along came that trifecta from a few years back and that has led to a bit of a reduction to 8-1 when it comes to the safety odds for Super Bowl 51.  One would bet $100 to win just shy of $800 at BetPhoenix or $10 to win just shy of $80.

The years were 2012 through 2014.  While a safety had been scored in the 2009 Super Bowl, we hadn’t seen one since 1991 prior to that time.

Wikipedia broke down the most recent safety scores that in 2012 resulted in Gambling911.com’s server crashing for a period of nearly 20 minutes.

“It seemed the whole world was logging onto the Gambling911.com website to find out what the odds of a third safety in a row were,” noted Gambling911 Senior Editor Payton O’Brien.  “And that is never a good thing when everyone is doing so all at once.”

From Wikipedia:

Super Bowl XLVI

In the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVI between the Giants and the New England Patriots, New England quarterback Tom Brady was called for intentional grounding in his own end zone after he threw the ball toward the center of the field while under pressure and where no receivers were on his team's first offensive play of the game. This was the second time after Super Bowl IX that the first score of the game was a safety, and the second time in a Super Bowl that a safety was the result of a penalty (the first was in Super Bowl XLIII). The Giants went on to win 21–17.

Super Bowl XLVII

In the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLVII between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, with the Ravens ahead 34 – 29 and having the ball with 12 seconds remaining, punter Sam Koch ran the clock for 8 seconds in the end zone before being run out of bounds for a 49ers safety. The Baltimore Ravens would go on to win the game 34-31 with the 49ers being unable to return the ball in the remaining 4 seconds.

Super Bowl XLVIII

On the first play from scrimmage of Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was shifting forward from shotgun formation when the ball was snapped past him and was then recovered in the Broncos' own endzone by Denver halfback Knowshon Moreno to prevent a touchdown, resulting in a 2-0 lead for the Seahawks. This was the fastest score ever in a Super Bowl with just 12 seconds ticking off the clock before the safety.[37] (A penalty was called against Manning for illegal motion, but it was declined and the safety counted.) The Seahawks won the game 43-8.

 

 

 

 

It was the New England Patriots involved in the last safety scored in a Super Bowl.
